MUNICIPAL CLEANUP PROGRAM

Grants up to $5000, plus help with tipping fees

March 3, 2008

[LIBERTY] – Applications are now available for matching grants to help municipalities with the cleanup of roadside sites and the removal of derelict, unsightly and unsafe structures.  Funding up to $5,000 for each project comes through the Sullivan Renaissance “Municipal Cleanup Grant” program.

 

Project partners – including Taylor Recycling, Weinert Recycling, Waste Management, Sullivan County First Recycling and Refuse, and Thompson Sanitation – will contribute services to the program.  In addition, Sullivan County will cover a portion of the tipping fees (subject to some limitations) associated with disposal of the construction debris at the county landfill. 

 

Municipalities may use in-kind contributions, private and/or foundation funds, and other sources of revenue for their match.  Structures that are subject to controlled burns by local fire departments are also eligible for funding.

 

Last year, over $45,000 was granted to eight municipalities for two roadside cleanup projects and the removal of nine buildings.

 

The application process is simple, but applications must be received by Monday, March 31, 2008.  Private property owners wishing to participate in this program should contact their local code enforcement officer or building inspector to inquire about sponsoring an application. 

 

“We want to thank our county and municipal officials and all our partners for joining with us once again on this grant program to help improve the appearance of Sullivan County,” said Sandra Gerry, who chairs the Sullivan Renaissance Steering Committee. 

 

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  Additional funding is secured by Senator John Bonacic and Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther.
